Dysmenorrhea (Menstrual Pain)

Primary dysmenorrhea, commonly referred to as menstrual pain or period cramps, is defined as the pain occurring in the lower abdomen before or during the menstrual cycle.

Menstrual pain is by far the most common gynaecological ailment. It is also the main cause of recurrent absenteeism from school or work in adolescent girls and young women. Despite resulting in activity limitations, most women suffer silently and fail to report their symptoms to a healthcare provider.

At our clinic, we teach women how their bodies work, how to find their core and inner strength, what is normal and what are the things women should not have to accept as normal.

We can resolve menstrual pain using a combination of manual therapy techniques, breathing and exercise.
